Japan. Is there a single country that has become as iconic in the snow-riding world of late? Riding powder defines the winter experience and Japan, it seems, has it in spades.

KATIE: (Tribute to Katie Lee) USA- 10 min.
“Katie Lee speaks for the canyons and the sweet desert recesses. She is our foul-mouthed, lightning-eyed, boot-stomping balladeer, a character Louis L’Amour never could have invented. Born from the rock itself, she is a lifetime of experience on this wild, restless, cradling ground. If you want to know this place, you need to know Katie,” – Craig Childs, The Apocalyptic Planet, The Secret Knowledge of Water, etc.) From award-winning director of Damnation, Ben Knight, this 10 minute tribute to one of the most amazing adventurer/activists to ever grace the waters of the Glen Canyon will have you laughing, crying and longing for the good ol' days prior to man-made "advances". (Katie’s natural style is exhibited in all its glory in this film, and therefore contains adult language and archival nudity).
